Dick Morris Dropped by Fox News

Dick Morris will no longer be serving as a contributor at Fox News, a spokesperson for the network told TheWrap.

Morris' contract had recently expired, and Fox will not be renewing it, the spokesperson said.

Morris, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton who later turned into a harsh critic for the Clintons, had been a longtime contributor to Fox, but has not appeared on the cable network in recent months.

But while Morris may no longer be a presence on Fox News' airwaves, he isn't disappearing from television news -- at least not immediately. Morris announced on his website Tuesday that he willl appear on Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

"You read it right! I will be a guest on The Piers Morgan Show [sic] on CNN, yes CNN, this Wednesday night at 9 PM EST," Morris wrote. "I'll spell out what the Republican Party must do to win national elections again and will discuss how House Speaker Boehner has become Obama's captive. Tune in!"

Morris' exit at Fox News comes less than two weeks after news broke that former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who had been a contributor for the cable news network since January 2010, had parted ways with the network. That departure came following reports that Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes was so angry about Palin announcing her plans for the 2012 presidential election  on a rival outlet that he wanted to bench her.

In recent months, Fox News has added former "The Man Show" co-host Adam Carolla and former congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, who's known for his liberal views, to its roster of contributors. The network has also re-upped Karl Rove, the former senior adviser to George W. Bush, through the 2016 presdential election.
